You might try taking one headlight to your local junkyard. Worked for me. Saved a lot of $$.

Found my '04 HR Scepter has Nissan Frontier headlights. Other HR's in that era might have Nissan lights also.

Guess you have never driven in the rain in nine years either?

Just a heads up if you haven't done it yet. Pull one side or the other assembly and look at the numbers on the outer housing. Then go to ebay and enter and see what comes up. My 2001 Damon headlights are from a 92-95 Ford Taurus. Picked them up for $49.95 for the pair and freight free.

Willsre, just saw your posting on headlight.
I am want to replace the head light on my 2004 excursion. Not sure if yours is similar to mine, trying to figure out how to remove the old one

I just read your post on how to remove the headlight.

I opened the front hood and looked to see if I could remove the nuts from the top or would I have to crawl under and remove from the ground.

I removed all the nuts from underneath. When replacing them you can either have a helper hold them in place or use blue painters tape to use as a second pair of hands. Your mileage may vary.

You most likely have to have your headlights adjusted once you install them or just take the housings to a shop that does headlight adjustment and let them R&R them and adjust as necessary.

I don't drive after dark (or even near dark) so I haven't got mine adjusted yet.

Pucker factor on R&Ring my headlights was about a 5 because i don't like laying on the ground. Three nuts and a wire connector.

The headlamps on my 2005 Kountry Star come from a 99-04? Oldsmobile Alero. I've noticed some of the UPS big browns use the same headlight assembly as well.

Fog Lights

Anyone have Info on alternate Fog Lights which could be used in a 2000 Country Coach Magna. They are round. The fog light lens, housing, and wire harness (rolled up and zip tied out of the way) are present. Missing bulb. Also the plastic oval back has a hole in the middle with jagged edges (as if broken when harness disconnected ?). Size of hole? I can just fit my finger into the hole. Both Fog lights exactly the same. Looking through the posts it seems it will cost an arm and a leg by going through the Country Coach Factory parts.

My 2008 Fleetwood Discovery use the 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Headlights and I replaced them with the custom lights from VIP Motorz. They are fantastic!! My driving lights are from a 2005 PT Cruiser.....got the OEM lights for them. I installed all new bulbs at a brighter and higher rating of light than the stock bulbs! Everything worked out great!!

I took the headlights out of my Chieftain this weekend to polish them up as oppose to replacing them at this time. I did however note the number that were on them and cross referenced them with what vehicle the were original equipment for.

1998 Winnebago Chieftain, Model #: WKL36WL, 36ft. Diesel Pusher

Headlights are from 1995-1997 Ford Windstar
Part Number F58B-13N087-A (Physicall taken from original headlight).

Cross reference with Ford Part Number F58Z-13008-B

Hope that helps anyone else looking.

2005 Fleetwood Excursion

Thanks in advance for your help and ideas! Crawled up behind the coach and examined the back of both headlight assemblies. No visible number (sticker tags are worn off). Found a missing support bar and bunches of loose nuts, which I'll tighten up after I pick up some replacement items.

Fleetwood parts was not illuminating on who manufactured these, indicating the source was MCI.

Here is a picture and would appreciate your inputs -
